The humble gherkins is making a comeback. The slice of gherkin and hard cheese on a toothpick was on every 70’s hor d’oeuvre plate. The Ploughman’s platter with cured meats and pickles is now becoming a retro wine bar staple.
The humble zucchini has never tasted so delicious. Wonderful with cheese, any cured meats or smoked salmon. Brightens up any sandwich or livens up a boring salad. One fan puts them on their baked potatoes. My favourite is on lunch crackers with cottage cheese or ricotta absolutely moreish. Find your own unique use for these little gems.
